Assad: No one invited US, all foreign troops in Syria without permission are ‘invaders’

Syria: US troops spotted in armoured convoy
inside Manbij, Syria

Pity the poor Syrian people.  Imagine if you and your family saw the above atrocity on the streets of your country...convoys of American military vehicles, flags a fluttering...rumbling down the streets.  The history of that sight would strike terror in your breast.  You would know that your country will shortly be destroyed--brick by Viet Nam, Afghanistan, Iraq, Libya, etc., etc.,  They will poison its soil, water and air forever with depleted uranium weaponry. There is no more feared invading force on the planet than the "Democracy bringers".  Here's what the valiant, patriotic Syrian President Dr. Bashar al Assad had to say about it the other day:

 Assad: No one invited US, all foreign troops in Syria without permission are ‘invaders’

When a journalist asked the Syrian president if Damascus had “opened doors” for American troops in Aleppo province’s city of Manbij, Assad said “No, we didn’t.”

“What are they [foreign troops] going to do? To fight ISIS [Islamic State, formerly ISIL]? The Americans lost nearly every war. They lost in Iraq, they had to withdraw at the end. Even in Somalia, let alone Vietnam in the past and Afghanistan.”
According to Assad, the US “didn’t succeed anywhere they sent troops, they only create a mess; they are very good in creating problems and destroying, but they are very bad in finding solutions.”
The Pentagon confirmed earlier in March that US troops had been sent to Manbij to prevent conflict between US-backed Kurdish forces and rebels backed by Turkey.
Without foreign intervention, the Syrian war “will take a few months” to bring to an end, Assad noted.
“The complexity of this war is the foreign intervention. This is the problem,” he said. Syria’s president stressed that government troops are now very close to Raqqa, Islamic State’s stronghold some 100 kilometers from Manbij.

American troops were first spotted in the town earlier in March. Reports emerged at the time claiming that a deal had been struck for the US-backed Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF) to hand over some 20 villages in a zone between Manbij and Al-Bab, which had been recently taken by Turkish-backed forces, to the Syrian government.

“They [Syrian forces] are certainly aware of where we [US] are, and we are aware of where they are. There is no intention between the two of there being any conflict against any party other than ISIS,” Pentagon spokesman Captain Jeff Davis told reporters.

On Thursday, the US-led coalition confirmed that around 400 American marines and army rangers had arrived in Syria to establish an outpost to support an operation to take the city of Raqqa. The new contingent adds to the 500 US troops already in Syria. US Air Force Colonel John Dorrian, the coalition’s spokesman, says the new soldiers have been deployed to expedite the defeat of the terrorists in Raqqa.

Sure enough...less than 48 hours later we have the first report of mass deaths and destruction:

Terrorist bombs, US airstrikes kill scores in Syria
The so-called Syrian Observatory for Human Rights said the bombings targeted Shia pilgrims - a hallmark of Takfiri terrorists such as Daesh . They came after new airstrikes suspected to have been conducted by the US killed 28 civilians in and around Raqqah on Friday and Saturday, the observatory reported.The strikes hit a village on the eastern outskirts of the Daesh-held city, leaving four people dead and several others injured. US warplanes also targeted a school in the same area but caused no casualties. On Friday, US airstrikes on Raqqah killed 24 civilians, among them eight children and six women. Six Daesh militants were also killed in the strikes. The Observatory also reported fierce clashes between US-backed Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF) and Daesh terrorists along the border between the Syrian provinces of Dayr al-Zawr and Raqqah

Washington has been leading a bombing campaign in Syria against what are said to be Daesh positions inside the country since September 2014 without any authorization from Damascus or a UN mandate. The strikes have led to a high number of civilian deaths.  Back in January, Russian Defense Minister Sergei Shoigu accused the US-led coalition of having made no positive contribution to the counter-terrorism fight in Syria but having rather worsened the conflict there.

Let's be blunt and cut to the chase.  USrael is not fighting much is it is fighting human civilization and the rule of law.  Just like the degree of cyber lawlessness in the CIA was recently revealed by WikiLeaks disclosures of Vault 7...USrael is also fighting the rule of international law on earth by invading a nation in violation of that nation's sovereign right to say "No".  It is a rape, in other words.  Yet, the International Community stands silently by, wringing its hands.  Every national "leader" is terrified that if he or she speaks up....their country will be next.  The United States should be kicked out of the United Nations for this flagrant violation of the most fundamental law on the UN books!  The United Nations should be moved out of the United States...immediately!

The evil Ziofascist perps will not cease till they have broken every law created by humanity and have destroyed the entire planet.  Zero Hour is fast approaching.

In the same interview Assad makes it clear that Turkey is also an invader. In his answer to the 8th question Assad said, "Any foreign troops coming to Syria without our invitation or consultation or permission, they are invaders, whether they are American, Turkish, or any other one."

Assad also said in response to the 7th question that Turkey "has been supporting ISIS till this moment, because Erdogan, the Turkish President, is Muslim Brotherhood. He’s ideologically linked and sympathetic with ISIS and with al-Nusra, and everybody knows about this in our region, and he helped them either through armaments, logistically, through exporting oil." Assad also said, "So, we have more hopes now regarding the American party because of the new administration, while in Turkey nothing has changed in that regard. ISIS in the north have only one route of supply, it’s through Turkey, and they’re still alive and they’re still active and they’re still resisting different kinds of waves of attacks, because of the Turkish support.

My point is that the presence of Turkey's military on Syrian soil is 100% unwelcome and illegitimate. Both Turkey and the US are enemies of Syria. There will be no peace at Syria until both have departed from Syria's soil and skies.

I agree, SingingSam. All invaders are akin to rapists. Just as the world universally abhors rapists...the world should universally abhor invaders. They are just as disgusting.

Never mind what they say, watch what they do. They can lie about what they say but they cannot lie about what they do.

Or to put it another way, "By their fruits, ye shall know them"

By definition, what they do is the reality.

Assad is 110% correct. If Turkey wanted to defeat ISIS, they would cut their logistics.
If the US wanted to defeat ISIS, they would cut their funding. It doesn't get any simpler!

James I agree by their fruits ye shall know them..

As for Assad's interview- it was one of his most disappointing interviews

His Erdogan/Muslim Brotherhood is just a guilt by association logical fallacy and is music to the Trump administration ears:

Same as when we see the Sultan and Tsar headlines- logical fallacies
Since I firmly believe ISIS and Kurds are one and the same I see no realistic reason to believe Turkey is supporting ISIS. Or ever did support ISIS- ISIS came straight out of Iraq!

He contradicted himself in the interview blaming Turkey for fighters, then saying fighters had come in through Iraq . Mr Assad is aware that ISIS entered Syria via Iraq- it was telegraphed all over the place- He himself acknowledged that in previous interviews I've had posted at the blog

When Assad blames the US invasion of Iraq for the destabilization of Syria
A war that Turkey too great exception to also

Assad:" Part of it is related to what happened in Iraq after the invasion in 2003, where the American army or the Americans in general control everything in Iraq, including the prisons, and the leader of ISIS and most of his entourage were in the same prison. So, ISIS was created in Iraq under the American supervision"

Journalist: It was maybe not ISIS, this period, but Al Qaeda?

President Assad: No, it was called IS, it wasn’t ISIS. It was “Islamic State of Iraq.”

Journalist: Islamic State?

President Assad: Because it wasn’t in Syria at that time. That’s why it was called IS. That was in 2006.

Journalist: 2006?

President Assad: 2006, of course.

Journalist: Already, it was Islamic State in 2006?

President Assad: Of course. In 2006, of course, before the withdrawal of the Americans. That’s why they played either direct role or indirect role in creating ISIS.

Then IS becomes ISIS as it enters Syria via Iraq (after it was rebranded from AQ):
This was after the fall of Mosul when ISIS picked up all that money waiting for them in a Mosul bank and stole all manner of US vehicles and weapons

Mr Assad is also aware that the US has airstrips and is flying regularly out of northern Syria without his consent- bringing in soldiers and weapons- that is due to the fact that the US is not on good terms with Turkey.

Did Assad speak of Israel and Golan? And if he didn't? Why didn't he?

Like I said one of his poorest interviews

In closing.. Turkey, Syria and Iran had better stand together or they will fall one by one...for Israel 2.0 aka Kurdistan

The propaganda has moved along steadily- it had too since Turkey is a target

Penny said...

re: the claimed second Islamic State- wonder if it will be rebranded to Khorosan eventually--- this will be presented as blowback on Turkey- it's not
It's the planned attack- which is coming....Once Trumps safe zones are created in Syria-

Hi James:

You make a good point..."By their fruits ye shall know them"....which is, ironically, the only way we're going to know what Trump is about...because he's been all over the map in his pronouncements.

Hi Penny:

Thanks for your important contribution to this discussion. I'm hoping that Russia can keep a lid on the bad blood between Turkey and Syria. In all of his interviews that I've watched, Assad has consistently accused Turkey of being a kingpin behind the "regime change" operation in Syria. He does not trust Turkey. It's true, Turkey has been on both sides of the early days it facilitated the USrael project...then, since the failed coup, it has tried to follow Russia's lead in Syria...but it is clear from this interview that Assad still does not trust Turkey.

It is a great challenge to Putin to negotiate between these two countries because only by being united can they resist the coming onslaught.

Penny, I thought it was a very good interview. I have never seen a bad one by him.

ISIS and the Kurds largely co-operate because they are told to by their paymasters – the US. ISIS did come out of Iraq originally but gained a lot of finance from selling oil to and through Turkey. It is still going on as far as I know.

The fact is that Erdogan has been supportive of the Muslim Brotherhood in the past and was no doubt encouraging the MB in Syria to rise up in 2011. They suit(ed) his purpose and that is all that matters when you are a psychopath and Erdogan is definitely a psychopath.

Penny, you know a lot more about the details of the various terrorist groups that are fighting in Syria and maybe the distinctions are meaningful to you but for the average observer (incl me) the names are largely irrelevant. From what the Russians have said on many occasions, the fighters themselves are confused often as to which group they are fighting under this week.

Assad said that “fighters” are coming through Turkey, and so they are. Turkey (Erdogan) is sponsoring many of these fighters. He is fighting against Syria and we know this because Assad has said that ALL foreign troops (incl Turkish troops) are invaders.

If Erdogan was really co-operating with Assad and the SAA, then the Turkish troops would be there by invitation and he wouldn't be supplying logistics to his own terrorists (incl Uighurs which he transports there). Erdogan clearly has his own agenda. It is, as you note, not the agenda of the US but equally it is not the agenda of Syria.

Getting back to brand names, it hardly matters. They are all low IQ, brainwashed, drugged up demonic lunatics and are all ultimately paid by the US, Israel, Saudis AND/OR Turkey.

In closing.. Turkey, Syria and Iran had better stand together or they will fall one by one...for Israel 2.0 aka Kurdistan

Turkey/Erdogan will betray Russia and Syria because that is what psychopaths do and the whole of Turkey will suffer for it through being destabilised (as you have predicted). Syria will survive though it will take much longer than it should because of Erdogan's continuing treachery. My 2cents.
